chicago wedding photography

get in touch

so let me tell you a bit about me: 

Chicago’s been “home” for 5 years, but I grew up in Cincinnati. Yes, we really do put chocolate in our chili, and yes, it really is delicious on top of some spaghetti. 



If I could live inside the LP conservatory, I would. House goals, amiright? But hey…if winter’s gonna take up 6 months of the year here in Chi, I’m gonna surround myself with lush greenery and flowers (Shoutout to my hibiscus tree!!!)



I’ve never been one for a road trip, but tell me there’s a $400 flight to Italy and I’ll book it the next day. True story, and totally worth it.



I can never get enough sparkling water!!!!! My top 2 faves are LaCroix coconut and Waterloo grape. 



My outside-of-work time is spent rearranging furniture or finding new decor for my apartment, cooking new recipes with my home grown tomatoes and herbs, and working out. I’m a Peloton girl at heart, but new destinations and pretty summer days always get a few miles of running instead.



Nobody wants a 
stranger at their wedding

yup, sounds like us! Let’s chat!

Are we the right fit?

If you want photos full of natural laughter and real moments because you’re tired of Chandler Bing-ing it when a camera’s around, hey. Nice to meet you. 

During our time together, I get to know you on a deeper level and make your comfort number one – so you’re fully at ease, able to soak in those sentimental moments while I capture your connection and personalities above all else. And hey…some glowy golden hour light wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. 

But what’s it like to 
work together???

You know that feeling when someone gives you a gift that you didn’t even know you needed, then suddenly it becomes your most-used item? (for me that meant an oversized fleece sweatshirt that became my go-to pjs for all of winter lol)

Wellllll, that’s what working together feels like. 

Okay, so you know a bit about me.

When you hire me, you get:

  • An ultra-personal video consultation
  • Engagement session tips complete with time and location advice, outfit tips (I’ll be your very own Tan France…just ask!!!), and posing help
  • Vendor recs! I’ll tell you my fave (+ the best) vendors to bring your day to LIFE
  • A streamlined process to keep you from being overwhelmed, but make sure I get all the info for a smooth + easy day. 
  • Previews baby!!! No more blurry zoomed in phone pics to show off the best day. Your insta feed deserves more than that.

let's work together

She is organized yet relaxed, incredibly good at her job, and the ultimate hype woman! 

Struggling to find the words to describe just how amazing Alana and Olivia were during our engagement photo shoot and wedding! From the moment we spoke with Alana over the phone we were put at ease. She is organized yet relaxed, incredibly good at her job, and the ultimate hype woman! My husband and I felt so calm and relaxed day-of because of the incredible energy Alana brought and she captured all the meaningful/fun/unexpected moments of the day perfectly! We would 100% hire Alana again!!!! (Also we got our photos back SO quickly!!!)
